I got the same thing. That is a google ad sidebar, so someone may have purchased that space to go with that search result.

It LOOKS like a threat. I have done this search 5 times now and someone overseas, who alerted me to this, has also done the same search several times with the exact same result. No rotating ad. Just this

This is why that came up

Apparently there’s a musician called Allen West who played for the band Obituary

What he’s getting at is an add that says “also try obituary” has been hardlinked to google searches for Lt Col West.

A not so subtle wish that he’d die or is dead. You know, civility libscum style.

Same results. However, it’s probably because there is a band called “Obituary” that has a member named Allen West.

There is band called "Obituary." The lead guitarist is musician Allen West.

Not the same Allen West, obviously.

No conspiracy here.

Allen West is also the name of a guitarist from a band called Obituary.

That is why the Google link exists between the name Allen West and the word Obituary.

Doesn’t google rotate their ads? And if this was purchased by someone to go specifically to this search. is that not a perceived threat?

I found this on a Bing search. Look at the Los Angeles add (on left of screen) It says “Livingsocial presents: Los Angeles Bucket List...things to do before you die”....and it is connected to a story about Rep. West making a comment about Keith Ellison. Hmmmmm....

That's not a sponsored link or advertisement. That's Google trying to be helpful and suggesting "related" searches.

It's creepy, but I doubt there's anything threatening or nefarious about it.

If you click the link, you get a Google search for "obituary" and the second item on that page is a Wikipedia entry for a "death metal" band from Tampa Florida that calls themselves "Obituary." Now, that band had a lead guitarist named "Allen West." He was one of the founding members.

Yes. Me, too. Good catch, MM.

I have also noticed this week that unless you know what to look for, Google trends will not display the keywords Beck has mentioned. Like ‘Islamic socialism.’

It’s not called ‘ogle’ for nothing.

Well alrighty then. My friend overseas was spazzed on this and so was I when it came up over and over. That is WHY I asked you guys for help here. I never heard of a death metal band named obituary.
I asked for your help, not your insults. Thanks alot for the help, those who helped.
As for the insults...well....

What he’s getting at is an add that says “also try obituary” has been hardlinked to google searches for Lt Col West.

According to The Search Agents, the "Also try" feature isn't a paid ad:

"So adding links to relevant queries is not new. But as far as I can tell, the “Also try” feature is the first time Google has used the right-hand column – the part of the page which had always been reserved exclusively for advertisements – to serve me additional, relevant queries."

As far as it being hardlinked to Allen west, "Try also: Obituary" doesn't come up if "LTC Allen West" or "Lieutenant Colonel Allen West" is entered in the search field, so it's only linked to the generic term "Allen West" which could be either the politician or the musician.

I'm no fan of Google, but I think this is one time they're just trying to be helpful by suggesting other term(s) to narrow the search.

Look at that add posted at #33. I’m alarmed over this too MM. Especially after Representative West spoke out against CAIR, Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas and Hezbollah.
